Barn Building, The Roof Begins


In many ways, roofing was the most difficult task.

Barn roofing is a critical aspect of barn construction as it provides protection for the interior of the barn and its contents. There are several types of roofing materials that a roofer will more commonly use for barns, each with their own benefits and drawbacks.

Metal Roofing: Metal roofing is a popular option for barns due to its durability and low maintenance. Metal roofing comes in various colors and styles, and is resistant to fire, weather, and pests.

Asphalt Shingles: Asphalt shingles are an affordable and easy-to-install option for barn roofing. They come in a variety of colors and styles, but may not be as durable as metal roofing.

Rubber Roofing: Rubber roofing is a durable and flexible option for barn roofing. It is resistant to weather, fire, and pests, and comes in a variety of colors.

Wood Shingles and Shakes: Wood shingles and shakes are a traditional and attractive option for barn roofing. They provide good insulation and are available in various colors and styles. However, they require regular maintenance and can be expensive.

When selecting a roofing material for your barn, it’s important to consider factors such as climate, budget, and the intended use of the barn. In addition, proper installation and maintenance of the roofing material is crucial to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the roof. You can hire a residential or commercial roofing contractor to help. For us, we did it ourselves.

It was hot in the summer of 2010 and roofing in the midst of Georgia’s summer months is a good way to end up severely sunburned, dehydrated, and repeatedly stung by yellow jackets. Josh suffered all three and I went through two Epi-Pens thanks to the yellow jackets. Bee stings on sunburned flesh is misery that I wouldn’t wish on anyone.





  • Holly - OMGoodness, Lacy… 2 Epi-pens? That’s a lot of yellow-jackets. And on sunburned flesh… OWWWWWWch! It’s sad that getting it built came at such a high price, but the barn does look pretty awesome. I bet the animals love it…ReplyCancel
